Can normal people can get these models?

Hi,

I'm not sure where to post this question, so I'll ask here.
Today I saw on Airbus' Twitter the picture of the deal with AirAsia:
https://twitter.com/Airbus/status/752874200474550276

One of these persons in the pic is holding a model of an aircraft in AisAsia colors. I've seen some of these models in such pictures and in my opinion they are perfect models. Now I wonder if normal people who don't work at Airbus or Boeing or Wherever can get these models.

So, can normal people can get this sort of model?

Re: Can normal people can get these models?

Strange question....everyoen can get everything...just a matter of co-incidence, persistence, MONEY and luck in the end. Or a combination of all of it.

Look how many People here have huge models which were property of manufacturers or Airlines and not all of us work at Airlines or manufacturers....

Re: Can normal people can get these models?

Try the usual sites for big models, sometimes even Ebay. But be Aware, you gotta bring a lot of Money with you often....dont think I am afraid that you are yet "fit" for that with 15, sorry.
Some models tend to cost from few hundred Euros up to a few thousand...

Dude, that's just a simple desktop model, probably made of fiberglass, wooden or plastic.
I have a few in my room, including plastic snap-fit ones, which you can find on Ebay for a pretty cheap price

Try searching for SkyMarks, Hogan or Wooster models!
Flight Miniatures is also a nice one, but not as nice as SkyMarks or Hogan. However, they're much cheaper.
